That Pauley show gets some great reviews I think I will go for it today.

I checked and they played 8 shows from 12/12 to 12/22 and then 4 from 12/27 till 12/31. This right out of the hospital. Jeez. The show must go on. Break a leg or something.

I caught them on 12/21 and 12/22 on that tour and loved them but honestly I did not say then I thought he was sick.

That NJ video floors me, especially at the end of Shakedown, I keep thinking he is down for the count but he keeps bouncing back for more great licks like those old punching dummies you blow up, with sand on the bottom.. If you look at him on Fire, he looks gone, sweat pouring out of him grinning away, eyes closed.
